Dungeon Siege Screenwriter Selected

GameSpot is reporting that producer/director Uwe Boll has picked Van Helsing's David Freeman to be the screenwriter for the upcoming Dungeon Siege movie. Here's the gist of the newsbit:
Speaking from Germany, Boll told GameSpot Freeman got the nod because of his dual talents in the game and film world. "David is an expert in videogames and a very good scriptwriter. He thinks very deeply about the mood of the game, the whole structure and character development--which is the basis of making a great movie."

Freeman's game credits include script credit for upcoming titles Van Helsing, Mission Impossible: Operation Surma, and Command and Conquer 3. In the area of film and TV, Freeman has written and developed scripts and other properties which have been bought or optioned by Columbia Pictures, MGM, Paramount, Castle Rock, and Buena Vista Television.
